What will you be baking for guests this holiday season? While I tend to gravitate towards chocolate desserts, I also enjoy apple pie. This year I decided to put a twist on a classic favorite – Apple Pie Cookie Bars.
Since it is a busy season, I don’t always have a lot of time on my hands. Using products like Pillsbury™ Baking mixes are a great way to simplify recipes and save time in the kitchen. What I really like is their new line of Purely Simple™ products that provide a simple homemade taste without colors, preservatives or artificial flavors. [Read more…]

Impress your guests this Thanksgiving with these meal planning tips and amazing marshmallow dessert idea! Whether you’re planning your first or 20th Thanksgiving meal, here’s some ways to make it a success.
Be the Ultimate Party Planner with these Holiday Tips:
- Plan your menu in advance. There’s nothing like scrambling last-minute to put something together and not having enough ingredients on hand. A few classics to consider: Turkey or Ham, mashed potatoes and a really good dessert.
- Have a back-up. If one of your dishes falls flat before it hits the table, have a back-up plan. Buy rolls from the bakery incase you burn your crescent rolls, and buy a jar of gravy just incase your homemade version doesn’t pan out.
- Making your own pie? Prep the dough ahead of time and freeze them until needed.
- Save oven space by making some of the dishes on the stove top (or asking family/friends to bring a dish). This will keep you on track for dinner at the scheduled time.
- It’s okay to use some store-bought items. Thanksgiving is about spending time together, so don’t overwork yourself in the kitchen.
- Don’t forget appetizers. Your guests can’t wait for dinner, but smelling all those delicious meals being created in the kitchen can work up any appetite. Have a few appetizers dishes prepped and ready.
- Keep the kids busy. Have a classic movie or fun craft station prepped in another room for kids to enjoy.
- End on a high note – with a delicious dessert (like the one I’m sharing below)!

Baby Sprinkles are trending among moms-to-be. They may be so new that you haven’t heard of them just yet. These parties are for moms who are having a second, third or later child. Many times, parents have a different gender the second time around and new items are needed for their latest bundle of joy. Plus – isn’t every baby worth celebrating? I certainly think so!
This smaller version of a baby shower typically includes close friends and family and isn’t as elaborate as the first time around. It may include a few games, smaller gift items, and a few snackable foods, like the one I’m sharing with you today!
These Strawberry Mini Sugar Cookie Sandwiches are dee-licious and a cute treat for a Baby Sprinkle. Read on to grab the recipe below! [Read more…]
Pizzelle may be something you’ve never heard of before now. These thin Italian cookies look like waffles but are crispy like crackers. When I spotted them in my local World Market store I wasn’t sure what to do with them, but knew I wanted to try them. My dad’s side of the family originated from Sicily and grew up in New York, so I had a feeling these would bring some nostalgia to the dinner table.
By the way, pizzelles can be eaten on their own, but I thought I’d do a fun twist by making them into ice cream sandwiches. Then I added Nutella to the mix….holy yumminess batman!
Okay, so here’s what you need to pull off this incredibly easy and delicious dessert recipe.

This recipe might have you singing a familiar song, “Put the Lime in the Coconut.” 😉 If you’re hosting a party of any kind and want some fun cupcakes to include at the dessert table, these Lime and Coconut Cupcakes will do just that!

Have you ever visited a local farm to pick your own produce? Our family made a trip to a local strawberry farm last weekend to do just that.

As you know, we are big Marvel fans, so when Disney and Marvel collaborated to create the amazing Big Hero 6 movie, we were pretty ecstatic. And after my recent visit to LA to interview the film directors and voices behind Tadashi, Hiro, and Baymax – I couldn’t wait to bring home the movie for my boys. I decided to plan a fun after school adventure last Friday, complete with Baymax Rice Krispies Treats.
Once lil guy and I picked J up from school we headed to our local Walmart store to buy their exclusive Big Hero 6 gift set with bonus DVD. The entertainment department has the “new releases” stand easy accessible from the aisle. As you can see L was pretty excited to have the movie in his hands. We also picked up the ingredients needed to make our fun Baymax treats.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is one of my favorite Marvel movies. With the film releasing to DVD this week (September 9th) and the fall season approaching, I decided to celebrate by creating Captain America Shield Candy Apples.
I am a World Market Ambassador. I’ve teamed up with WM for this sponsored opportunity. All opinions are my own.
As a World Market Ambassador, I get a heads up on what new trends are coming to stores. The Americana beach theme mirrored the decor I was selecting for the new home that we are building. Before I share all of the fun decor I picked up at World Market, I wanted to share this Strawberry Lemon Mini Bundt Cake recipe. Because what good is a party without food, right? 🙂 I was waiting in anticipation to shop the deals at World Market and create a fun Americana Beach Party for our family.
Buying a home can be a mix of emotions. Often things do not work out as planned and cause setbacks. Although that is the case in our situation, I still wanted to make the most of our family’s next chapter. With the help of my step-mom we planned a pre-celebratory party at her home.
These Mini Stars & Stripes Bundt Cakes are a great addition to an Americana Beach Party.

One of my husbands favorite summer fruits is blackberries. Using just a few simple ingredients I created this summer treat – Mini Blackberry Trifles.
This blackberry trifle recipe is the perfect ending to a warm summer day in the sun. Creating individual dishes suits well for afternoon cookouts, summer weddings, and baby shower desserts. Not a fan of blackberries? Simply switch out the fruit for something you prefer, like strawberries, raspberries, or a combination of your choosing.
